Saab 95 production
Here is a view of several stations on the Saab 9-5 production line. The
9-5, like the 9-3 is a fantastic car! I love Saab alot and I hope you Saab
lovers out there enjoy this insight into what goes on in Trollhatten.
Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike
Video from Sweden. An unmarked police car chases an Yamaha R1 -01. Seems
like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the
pursuit. And yes, the guy on the R1 didn´t have the skills to keep the
Crash Test 1999 - 2008 Saab 9-5 (Side Impact) IIHS
SIDE IMPACT TEST WITH STANDARD SIDE AIRBAGS
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable
Injury measures Head protection Structure/safety cage
Head/neck Torso Pelvis/leg
Driver Good Good Acceptable Good Marginal
Rear passenger Good Good Good Marginal
Important: Side impact crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle
type and weight categories.
The Saab 9-5 was introduced in the 1999 model year. Although engineering
changes were made to improve frontal crashworthiness beginning with 2002
models built after November 2001, these changes were not expected to affect
The 9-5 was modestly restyled for the 2006 model year.
Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that a fracture of the
pelvis would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of
significant injuries to other body regions is low.
Rear passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any
significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Driver — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard
structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side airbag that deployed
from the seat.
Rear passenger — The dummy's head was hit by the pillar behind the rear
passenger door and the window glass and window sill of the rear door. The
pillar is required by federal standard to provide some protection for
occupants' heads. The impacts with the window glass and sill did not
produce high head injury measures, but the head protection is inadequate.
~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has
limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted.
But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a
lot faster between 0-150kmh, but
these Saabs are faster from
150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line.
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses
traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and
then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three
gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th
gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone
changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile
race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any
incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please
see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min.
Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars

Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking
a deformable barrier. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier
impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is
propelled sideways at 29km/h into a rigid pole.
